Nissan Juke-R performance

The performance statistics for Nissan Juke-R have been confirmed by the Japanese carmaker, announcing a supercar crossover concept that smartly blends the handling and power of the famous GT-R with the bold design of Juke. Its extensive performance testing has completed the final stage of the development project after a 22-week period in which two models were created, a right-hand drive and a left-hand drive. With a maximum speed of 160 mph, the car covers the 0-100 km/h sprint in only 3.7 seconds due to the 485bhp 3.8-liter V6 twin turbo engine. The unique split rear wing, the FIA-specification roll cage, as well as the Nissan GT-R's suspension and drivetrain, result in an outstanding handling, remainig at the same lighter as compared to the Juke-R thanks to the extra chassis and roll cage reinforcements. The car's width has increased from 1765mm to 1910mm, while the length of 4135mm, the height of 1575mm and the wheelbase of 2530mm, have remained the same. The interior is refined, providing OMP race seats for the driver and passenger, offering all the controls and instruments from GT-R at their fingertips, while the centre of the dashboard comprises the 7-inch touch-screen display, thus allowing access to the information about the car to which any GT-R owner is accustomed. During the 22 weeks of the creation of the Juke-R, a series of 10 videos were released on YouTube and via the Nissan Juke Facebook page.
